We’re pleased to inform you that HDRF Depression Task Force member Dr. Joshua Gordon of Columbia University spoke this Saturday at the Third Annual AspenBrainLab in Aspen, Colorado.
Dr. Gordon told an audience of 400 at the Aspen Institute’s Paepcke Auditorium about how the promising research of the HDRF Depression Task Force can change the way we view, diagnose and treat depression.
“What I’m really excited about is … the explosion of tools that enable us to manipulate and monitor brain activity,” he told Aspen Public Radio before the event.
“In the next five or ten years we won’t just give a drug to the entire brain,” he continued. “We’re going to be able to target a treatment – whether it be drug, stimulation or psychotherapy – at particular neural circuits.”
The AspenBrainLab is a day-long symposium that convenes scientists and other experts from around the world to shed light on a range of brain-related topics for a general audience.
